Why is my Toilet Gurgling and Bubbling in Rochester, NY?
Frequently I get asked ” when the toilet upstairs is flushed it gurgling or bubbles in toilet downstairs ” There are a couple of things that could cause this to happen. Most of the time this is the beginning of a clogged line, somewhere below the downstairs toilet. In which case the plumbers at Leone Plumbing & Heating
would locate the closest cleanout (usually found in basement) to gain entry to snake the line with the appropiate snake or (roto rooter) machine to clear the blockage. If there is not a cleanout then they would pull the first floor toilet to gain entry to the plumbing drain sysytem. In other cases it could be that a venting problem has developed and a Leone Plumbing & Heating technician would need to diagnose a strategic location to install a air admittance valve.
